Berlin, Aug. 16.—The German merchant submarine Deutsehland has not been heard from since 3he cleared the Virginia Capes on the night of August 2, the United Press learned from reliable marine sources today. Sixteen days were required ior the Deutsehland to cross the Atlantic on her tri:i to Baltimore. Part of that lime she Bpent in dodging hostile \itnail;, she could have made tbe voyage in much shorter time. The fact that I -1 days have elapsed and she has not been heard from indicates that she has been compelled to take a roundabout course on the return also to avoid British and French warships if she has not met with a mishap. The Deutsehland is equipped with a high power wireless apparatus but probably would not communicate with a German station while in British waters fearing detection and pursuit. By United Press. New York, Aug. 16.—The problem of averting a railroad strike that would paralyze the traffic of the country still rests with President Wilson. The 600 district chairmen of thei big four brotherhoods representing! the 400,000 trainmen today accept-1 ed the president's invitation to confer with him in Washington tomorrow. No other decision was reached at their meeting here, however, and the situation continued deadlocked. The committee chairmen left for Washington this afternoon with W. 8. Carter, head of the Bremen - brotherhood with their demands for an eight hour day and time and a half for overtime unamended and backed up by a vote to strike if they are refused. Carter regarded the situation as serious as to tbe opening of the negotiations, but sale mere was still "room for hope." He explained that oaly the chairmen had the power to agree to a compromise such as suggested by President Wilson with the railroads granting the eight hour day for a time under the present system of overtime For this reason the presence of the 6W chairmen is- nc- eeeary in Washington. HI WAS BOX OF CIGARS" IN CODE OF WHIFF SFAVFRS Beethoven 'Tastes" Like Steak to Him Chicago, Aug. 16.—Music has lieen said to affect the sight and hearing but the latest was sprung today by Robert W. Stevens, music- professor at Chicago University, who says music can be tasted. "Particular instruments and particular compositions have their distinctive tastes," said Stevens. "So the music of the oboe is acidly arid, like a lemon or a persimmon." "The flute is crystal sugar, the cello good coffee and the clarinet reminds me of a good grapefruit." "Beethoven," declared the professor, has the taste of a tenderloin steak and Chopin that of a fresh trout. It may be possible then to have dinner without an orchestra, but it is impossible to have an orchestra without a dinner taste.
